Create design oriented PDF forms
It would be very helpful to have an option of creating PDF forms in Illustrator.
Creating forms in Acrobat PRO is very clunky for anyone who needs more design oriented features. It would allow graphic designers to create editable PDF templates for products such as cards, invitations etc. Such templates are in a high demand, people want to purchase files that can be edited with ease and there are no good options for creating them.
Such feature would also be very helpful in InDesign for catalogs, brochures, anything with multiple pages.

This has been an issue for years now and terribly slows down the workflow. Moving into a very rigid and simple Acrobat Pro DC Form interface without and alignment features makes it very difficult to prepare "fillable" artworks. InDesign helps but that's still another software jump that creates unnecessary number of files and makes it a very messy process. Adding PDF forms in InDesign is difficult for print oriented files whilst adding PDF forms in Acrobat Pro takes ages and it requires a huge amount of realigning and unnecessary clicking especially if styling is necessary.
There are numerous tutorials and pages that mention creating a template in Illustrator and then finishing the whole thing in Acrobat Pro.
We often have to prepare complicated labels with batch codes and expiry dates that are sitting in a multi-page PDF files with artwork changes - just before the print batch code and expiry date changes using a PDF form.
Illustrator should really have this functionality.
